    Interested in Joining Women in Innovations? Take the WIN Survey!

    Heart disease is the number-one killer of women in the U.S.

    Yet, the number of women enrolled in cardiovascular clinical trials is quite low.

    The number of female interventional cardiologists is also low.

    What can you do to help?

    Join interventionalists from around the globe in SCAI's Women in Innovations (WIN) initiative. The goal of this exciting new program is to reduce gender disparities in cardiovascular care and professionalism though the development of:

    1. Professional development opportunities for female interventionalists;
    2. Education on gender disparities in cardiovascular care; and
    3. Research tracks and innovation in this area.

    Membership in WIN is Free - Take the WIN Survey to Join NOW
